The "Love" Wreath

Valentine's Day is right around the corner so how about a fun home decor project?  Shortly after the new year I found a plain metal, heart wreath in the dollar bin at Target.  On it's own the wreath was not so exciting...but paired with my FotoBella I Want It All Bundle Bo Bunny Star-Crossed Collection it became fabulous!


What started out as a plain heart metal wreath, quickly came to life with tons of detail.  I covered the metal hearts with patterned paper from the Star-Crossed Collection.


With the help of my Silhouette, I cut out the word "Love", the love birds, cupid and the red flower.  I also embellished with the chipboard stickers from the collections.  


Isn't it gorgous?!?  Forgive me for not being very modest about this project, but I can't stop staring at it!  The ribbon was left over from Christmas and matched perfectly.  For some more bling, I used the Diamond Stickles to glitter up the feathers on the dream catcher. the word "Love"  and I also added some rhinestones to the flower and dream catcher.  


Ahhh cupid has struck again.....I'm in love!

Get your Bo Bunny Star-Crossed Bundle and if you want this wreath, seriously run to Target right now!  

Have a fabulous day!

Good For One Day At the Beach layout

 Hey there everyone!  I'm sharing a beach layout today using Bo Bunny Star-Crossed I Want it all Bundle at FotoBella.com.  This collection has made it onto my "Favorites" list.  The dark red and blue colors accented by the black is gorgeous.  What really did it is when I saw the dreamcatchers, feathers and the hot air balloons.  You see I've made sure to use those elements in this layout.  



The colors in this beach photo are complimented perfectly by the Star-Crossed collection.


Aren't the hot air balloons fun?  They make a great embellishment for this outdoor photo of the kids enjoying the Slurpees at the beach.  


I fussy cut the feathers, wrapped them with twine and tied them together in a similar way that you see them tied to dreamcatchers.  Such a beautiful and simply addition to any project.  

Have a fabulous day!

Fun Family Time Layout

One of the most important things about the holidays is spending time with your families.  I love scrapbooking the holidays of previous years, and remembering all of those great times we shared.  Today's layout is made with We R Memory Keepers North Pole I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com.  The bundles are fabulous and this one will not disappoint.  FotoBella bundles have a TON of paper in them, not to mention all the embellishment goodies that go along with it.  


Don't you just love these script alpha stickers?  They make such stunning titles. 


I got a lot of photos on this page using my circle stamp to crop out the backgrounds of the photos and draw the focus to our faces.  


Happy Holidays everyone!  Hope they are full of your own fun family times!

Have a fabulous day!

Dear Santa Layout

Christmas time is fast approaching and what better time to shop for yourself at FotoBella.com It is the place to find great Christmas collections like this one I'm featuring today by We R Memory Keepers.  It's the North Pole I want it all bundle and it is perfect for those holiday projects you've been waiting to start.  This collection has the classic colors and patterns.  


There are some fun snowflake stickers I couldn't wait to use in this collection.  I adhered them to the layout with foam squares to give them some dimension and coordinate with the snow flake patterned paper I used for the background of the layout.


When I saw the alpha stickers I was really excited to use them.  They are really cute!  I had a bunch of titles I wanted to use, and settled on this one (so I'd have enough letters, ha!).


Silver Stickles added some sparkle to the center of the snowflakes and ran it along the edge of the photo to frame it out with some bling!  Visit FotoBella to see this bundle for yourself.

Have a fabulous day!

I Love Aspen Layout

Aspen, Colorado is such a beautiful place to visit.  While we were there we spent some time at the John Denver Sanctuary.  The photos from the trip were perfect for the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  


This collection has a few embellishments with it, but for the most part, I fussy cut a lot for a lot of my embellishments on tis page.  It really brought the page to life, in my opinion and this layout is one of my favorites.  


Everything you see on this page from the tree, dear head, hearts, owl, leaves, all fussy cut from the Journal Cards in the Albums Made Easy Card Set.  I added some Stickles, glossy accents and twine to the mix as well.  


I inked the edges on EVERYTHING!  Between the cutouts, the inking and the added shine, this layout came out with some great dimension and character.

Have a fabulous day!
